Saskatoon – Many members of the Saskatoon Health Region team worked through Monday and overnight to ensure the effects of a burst water pipe and subsequent flooding were minimized.
As of this morning:
- The pediatric outpatient unit remains closed, but designated parts of the dept. will reopen later today. Patients will be seen in alternate locations as required, but all registration will continue at pediatric outpatients.
- All coronary care unit beds are now open.
- Surgeries continue as scheduled. Only six procedures were affected yesterday.
- Client Representatives are available to help patients navigate around affected areas and to respond to any concerns they may have.
Region operations will continue as normal. However, areas that are still affected by water damage, such as pediatric outpatients and The Medicine Shoppe pharmacy, will continue to be a focus of remediation work.
Saskatoon Health Region thanks our clients and patients for their understanding during this trying situation. We also acknowledge the many employees and physicians who worked above and beyond their usual duties to minimize the impact of this situation on patient care and safety, staff safety, and Region operations.
